3. Do you have Blacks, too?
http://www.sfbayview.com/061202/haveblacks061202.html

Washington (Der Spiegel) It was Condoleezza Rice, national security advisor, who helped her boss out of the embarassing situation. During a conversation between the presidents of the U.S. and Brazil, George W. Bush, 55, and Fernando Henrique Cardoso, 71, Bush bewildered his colleague with the question, Do you have blacks, too?

Rice, 47, noticing how astonished the Brazilian was, saved the day by telling Bush, Mr. President, Brazil probably has more blacks than the USA. Some say its the country with the most blacks outside Africa. Later, Brazilian President Cardoso said, regarding Latin America, Bush was still in his learning phase.
